Lok Janshakti Party chief Ram Vilas Paswan on Tuesday said he would embark on “Bihar Bachao Yatra” on January 6 to “expose” the Nitish Kumar government’s “much-hyped susashan” (good governance).
“During Nitish’s regime, Mahadalits have not only migrated but also have converted to Sikhism to protect themselves,” Paswan told reporters here. People belonging to the Mahadalit community in Araria district were forced to change their religious faith as protection from fear, terror and insecurity in the current regime, Paswan said, adding such things were unheard in Bihar.
